Rouhbakhsh reflects on the one-year anniversary of the city’s first confirmed COVID-19 case
Rambod Rouhbakhsh, MD, with Hattiesburg Clinic MediSync® Clinical Research, sat down with WDAM’s Melissa Rademaker to reflect on the last year, disclosing the challenges health care workers faced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The most difficult part about this, and the first time ever in my career and probably most of us in our careers have ever experienced it, is because it was emerging and there were so many unknowns. On top of the regular work you’re doing, you have this extra layer of stress and extra layer of anxiety,” Rouhbakhsh said.
The COVID-19 vaccine rollout has provided hope for health care workers and citizens worldwide as the nation has finally begun to see a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
“It makes me feel as though people are paying attention to what we’ve asked them to do because, to be perfectly honest, a big part of this battle has been what everybody in the community has been willing to do and put up with,” Rouhbakhsh said. “So it makes me feel like we’re coming together as a group and it warms my heart.”
Rouhbakhsh encourages everyone to continue to follow guidelines until they are fully vaccinated.
